Standardized Testing Gurus Make Changes to Online SAT/ACT classes, Math Modules, and Video Library
Boynton Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2016 -- For 90 years the SAT has been the barometer by which students from different high schools are measured. Colleges and Universities rely on the test as a guide, to inform them of the relative intelligence of applicants. Every few years the College Board, the creators of the SAT test, make adjustments to the exam, be it tweaks to the questions, the existence of an essay section, or the scoring rubric. As those changes are implemented, the students' approach to preparing for the test is fine-tuned. SAT Prep Group, based in Boynton Beach, Florida, has been helping high school students prepare for the important test since 2001. Most recently they unveiled a complete overhaul of their program, with changes made to their online classes, math modules, video library, and study aids. The changes are intended to better help students achieve high scores on the exam, and gain a better understanding overall of the nuances of the test.
Over the course of the last 15 years the team of teaching professionals at SAT Prep Group has demonstrated remarkable durability and adaptability. As the test has changed over the years, they have crafted and pruned their program to reflect the latest exam standards. Their most recent changes to their online classes boast a mix of blended learning with video tutorials, quizzes, textbook homework assignments & reading assignments. The video library is a great addition, featuring video tutorials for every single problem on the test. Perhaps the most striking change, however, is the addition of brand new study aids:
- Grammar 101 Guide: a guide to the most common mistakes and how to avoid them
- ACT/SAT essay planning worksheet: this worksheet helps students understand the structure of an essay and grow comfortable writing it on their own(this strategy is unique to SAT Prep Group – you won't find any other company using it)
"Each of the changes that we have implemented recently are exciting and I am confident that our students will reap the benefits," explained company owner and founder Steve Kirshenbaum. "We felt it necessary to amend our methods and we are looking forward to how students will respond and how their scores will reflect the changes we've made to the program."
